Because You're Mine

When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.

They're the ones with experience.
The ones with secrets.
The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.

From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news.
He was the headline.

My opinion didn't change on our second meeting.

Or our third.

But my h

⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2! Because You’re Mine (stand-alone). Suspense, mystery, lust & romance when the mob world collides with ballet!

“He’s so big that I swear I feel his dick touching my lungs.”

Because You’re Mine (stand-alone) opens up to professional ballerina Catalina Masseria, Cat agreeing to attend a college course in her sister’s name. Showing up for class and meeting her sex-on-a-stick teacher proves rewarding.

But their meeting is not a coincident…

This was my first Claire Contreras and, while I liked it well enough...I didn't love it as much as the blurb made me hope I would.

I LOVE mafia books, which is why I was so excited to read this one; however, I felt as though the plot and who was who in the zoo was kind of convoluted at times.

As much as I loved all the ballet and dance interspersed throughout the story, I felt as though there wasn't enough MAFIA in this mafia book. It was unclear who was aligned with whom and who was in c

Because You’re Mine is another must read from Claire Contreras. The chemistry between the heroine and hero is tangible, the suspense of the mafia storyline is enthralling, and the romance between the two is perfection. You are going to love it

It’s been a while since I’ve read a mafia book, and Claire Contreras really hit the spot with this story! Because You’re Mine is sexy, suspenseful, and exciting. It’s one of those books that once I started, I didn’t want to put down. And lets all just take a moment and look at that cover. I LOVE IT!

Catalina is a professional dancer in the NYC ballet. She lives in New York and tries to live a quiet life, distancing herself from her home town of Chicago. She has a reason for this. He

I'm always down for some hot mafia romance, but especially when it's an author I love writing it. I jumped on this book and I don't regret a second of my craziness over getting it. I thought the story was intriguing and sexy, and it had me captivated. From the opening scene to the last sentence it had me dying to find out what all the secrets were and I really liked that it was able to have me so invested in these characters.

I like the growly part of the story...

It's been a wee while since I've read a mafia romance and I have to admit that I struggled at first. I find it hard to get my head around blind devotion, lack of privacy and never-ending fear. The fear for your safety, your family and friends safety and the safety of innocent bystanders. I'm not sure that all the money in the world would make me fall for a mafia man. Then again, I wasn't born into a mafia family and I haven't lived it my whole life. Even whe

I wasn’t built for this life.

This was a good read. It’s mafia, which I love. Cat is a ballet dancer, and she’s a heroine that’s pretty strong on her own. Lorenzo is hot, and a bit jealous and possessive. They are both keeping secrets. Some bigger than others. Plus there is so much going on around them. I love so many of the side characters and want to know more about them!

I will say that at some points I just felt like something was missing. Like I was waiting for an even bigger bang, but I stil

This will be a short review.

Because You're Mine was a solid performance by Claire Contreras.

A mobster falling in love with a mobster princess/ballerina - was totally intriguing to me!! I have a fondness for mafia romances and I loved that the author didn't hold back, even though the story wasn't overly bloody or violent, but the backstory certainly suggested it.

I really liked the premise and had no problem staying focused. The characters and story were captivating and an easy read on a hot summe

There was a gazillion things to keep up with in this story and unfortunately my slow brain was so busy trying to catch everything, that I wasn’t able to enjoy all of them (JewelsyGoolsy dumbass). To me, it felt that every scene went from zero to a hundred on every page. Seriously, instead of swooning over potentially swoony parts, I was too busy re-reading paragraphs, memorising names and just trying to keep up with the pacing and all the emotional back and fourthing. Honestly, there was so much ...more

Loren is shit hot and made me fall for him immediately. He’s sexy, commanding, and a bit of an enigma throughout the first half of the book. The attraction between him and Catalina is undeniable. I particularly enjoyed the way he acts around her. All gruff and growl

I’ll start this off by saying that I loved this book—mad hard. It was complete and utterly sweet, gripping and captivating to boot, yet it also has just the right amount of suspense from the mob aspect of the story to send chills down your spine and make your heart thump like you’ve just finished running a marathon.

Because You’re Mine hit the ground running—the moment you dive in, you’ll immediately get sucked into the world of Loren and Catalina. There weren’t any dilly-dallies or boring introd

Because You’re Mine is labeled as a Sexy Romantic Suspense set in the world of the Italian Mob. While this book definitely has suspenseful, mysterious elements I wouldn’t consider it a full fledged Romantic Suspense.

I went into this book completely blind. Only intending to read a chapter or two to get a feel of the writing, setting, & characters and then pick it back up in a day or two. That didn’t happen. I totally dropped all my adultish responsibilities and read this in one day.

Ballet, mafia - so many books I have read where these two worlds are entwined (though I will admit it is usaually Russian ballerinas and the Bratva that I have come across) so it was different to have the US mob this time.

Cat and Lorenzo's story to me was, how should I say, a little lost? I don't know how else to describe it. Neither of them had any real goal for their future, no plan for what they were doing - but this could just be me?

I am surprised that I did not like this book. After reading the synopsis and reviews I was really looking forward to reading this. I mean who doesn't like a mafia love story. But I was more confused than a chameleon in a bag of skittles from the first chapter. The heroine in this story got on my nerves, all she does is cry. And do not get me started on the fact that all Lorenzo does is grunt! I am so aggravated about this book and how I spent 4 hours of my time actually reading it becau

Because You're Mine started out a little shaky for me. I felt like I was missing things, I kept backtracking and rereading chapters because I was struggling with connecting the dots.

I don’t remember when was the last time I read a book about a mafia romance. 🤔 But it’s been a while. That’s for sure. And I have no idea how many stars should I give, something between 4 and 5 stars. It wasn’t the perfect book, but it wasn’t bad either.
Even tho the beginning of the book was so good, at some point I was bored because I felt the need for action. And the action appeared at 60% of the book. And from that moment untill the end, I was hooked!

“One more question. Enrique said when your wife left you, you took it well. Did you ever go after her? Try to convince her to stay?” “No.” “Why not?” “I don’t know. I was young, I was over it. She left me for my cousin.” He shrugs. “I just didn’t care enough to chase her.” “But you chased me.” “I did.” “And you’d keep chasing me? If I say no to this? If I turned you away?” “Probably.” I stare at him. “Why?” “Because you’re mine.” 0 likes
